Early French Immersion

● French Immersion is a program designed for non-francophone children. Parents/guardians interested in registering a child for the French Immersion Kindergarten Program must select their zoned school. If Early French Immersion is not offered in the zoned school, parents/guardians must select the school closest to their place of residence that offers Early French Immersion (EFI).

● Early French Immersion Kindergarten registration takes place on a first-come first served basis for a limited number of seats. Applications will be dated and time-stamped upon submission of the online application form. All students are entitled to a program in English so if your child is waitlisted for EFI at a school that is not your zoned school, space will be held at the zoned school. Parents/guardians will be provided with further information once class lists for EFI are finalized in September.

St. Matthew's School does offer the Early French Immersion Program. For a list of schools offering the Early French Immersion Program, click here.
